I was flipping through my photo albums and Flickr page and realized it has been quite a while since I last processed and uploaded photos to my online Flickr album. It is a shame that there are still hundreds of travel photos taken on my recent travels to Japan and Europe not being processed and still kept in my raw folders. What’s the use of taking so many photos but not being shared with other travelers or shutterbugs?
What I’m going to do in the coming month of April, before my next vacation to Korea, is to process all interesting photos taken on my Europe trip 2 years ago and blog about them on this travel photo blog of mine. Did I say that? Wish me luck.
Here is one of them showing a scene of the Grand Place square of Brussels in one of the Spring Sunday morning when I was there.

What made it so popular is his peeing action in front of a fountain’s basin. It is located at the junction of Rue de l’Étuve/Stoofstraat and Rue du Chêne/Eikstraat, [...]
This is a photo snapped on my travel to Brussels last year. It is a monument named the Congress Column built in the 19th century in commemorating the formation of the Belgian state and constitution by the National Congress in 1830-1831. A rare 47m high Roman styled monument stood in close proximity to the large [...]
This is another photo of the Grand Place in Brussels, shot in the morning. The earlier photo posted was shot at night. I like both of them. Grand Place is the ‘must visit’ destination in Brussels.
